Wire-Free The E-TRAC ?

Post by Wigeon » Sun Oct 15, 2017 9:18 am

I would like to make my E-TRAC wire-free and have been looking at the item offered by Detector Bits, that would enable me to wire-free and utilise my own headphones. Offered at £79.96.
Has anyone used this item and if so, what is your experience and would you recommend it ?

i use the deteknix set up , with the wireless headphones about £80 from memory from detectorbits seems to be an excellent bit of kit and I havn't noticed any signal lag/delay etc. you don't get a charger in the kit just two usb leads, I noticed that C - Scope are now selling a very similar item if not the same but they also supply a mains charger in the kit and I think it's a bit cheaper
